August is my favourite month of the year. I mean, of course it is – my birthday is in August! Here’s everything I read this month!
I haven’t done a post like this in a while, but I thought I’d have a little reminisce over the last month and take a look at what I read.
I won’t lie to you, it felt like a lot more. But alas, there was only 4 books I managed to get through this month. Goodreads keeps bugging me about being “6 books behind schedule,” but I’m still quite happy with what I achieved. I also have a lot of reading to come later this year, but more on that another time 😉
So, here’s what I read in August:
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
I didn’t expect much from this book, and I can tell Han definitely wrote it for the dedicated fans. I loved seeing Lara Jean mature and all the loose ends from P.S. I Still Love You get neatly tied together. ★★★★☆
Save the Date by Morgan Matson
I think Morgan Matson writes the best books to read during summer, and Save the Date was just as good as all of her other beachy reads – if not better. Click here to read my full review. ★★★★★
Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman
A disappointing read, unfortunately. Well, more of a meh read, but definitely disappointing when compared to the hype. Click here to read my full review. ★★★☆☆
Gemina (Illuminae Files #2) by Amy Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
I was so excited to read Gemina because I adored Illuminae (read my review here), and thought it was a bit of a slower read, it definitely didn’t disappoint. ★★★★☆
